Drunk 'Cinderella' almost four times limit

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 29/04/2016

A drunk and dishevelled "Cinderella" tried to drive home from a Waikato ball almost four times over the legal limit - nearly wiping out a security guard, police say.

After a night at the Hunt Ball in Mystery Creek, the partygoer was stopped by police and returned a breath-alcohol reading of 965 micrograms of alcohol per litre of breath.

The legal limit is 250mcg.

Te Awamutu police said on Facebook the woman nearly ran a security guard off the road as she was leaving the ball.

"I'm guessing she was rushing to get home before she turned into a pumpkin," police said.

"Unfortunately for her - and fortunately for other road users - a few well-placed road cones at the airport road intersection roadworks confused her to such an extent she had to stop her car."
